Windows Let's combine the two most popular topics on the internet today into one: Windows 7 on netbooks. Microsoft has already confirmed that it will ship a version of Windows 7 designed for netbooks, the popular small laptops that appear to be the only bright spot in an otherwise abysmal PC industry climate. However, with various reports indicating that Windows 7 already runs fine on netbooks, this raises the question: what exactly is Microsoft planning?

In fact it wouldn't suprise me if it is one of those two versions. Think about it, Netbooks are feature limited so they minimize the size and weight of the netbook. They don't have very large screens so the resolution limitation of starter wouldn't be a big issue, the restrictions on how many programs you run at one time wouldn't be a big deal because most netbooks aren't as powerful as the average modern desktop or regular laptop system. And as a plus for Microsoft they might actually be able to do something with all the starter licenses and OEM packages since there is hardly any demand for it in the countries it is currently being sold in.
